Step 9: Adding Dossier Templates

Step 9: Adding Dossier Templates


This is step 9 of setting up a fully working Brand in Enterprise Server 10 for everyday use in a standard workflow environment. (See a list of all steps)


Often-used Dossier Templates can be added to the Applications pane of the Home page in Content Station so that they can be easily accessed by users.

Adding a Dossier to Content Station is done by assigning a user group to a Dossier Template in Enterprise Server. All users that are part of that group will see the Dossier Template in their Application pane in Content Station.

Adding Dossier Templates to a Brand is done in the following locations:

  • For periodic Brands (such as magazines and newspapers), Dossier Templates are added on the Brand Maintenance page.
  • For project-oriented Brands (typically used by book publishers and advertising agencies), Dossier Templates are added on the Issue Maintenance page.

Step 1. Make sure that the Dossier Templates that need to be added have been created by using the Planning Application in Content Station. See Working with Dossiers in Content Station 9.

Step 2. Make sure that the Enterprise Server plug-in named Content Station List Dossiers is enabled. For more information about Server plug-ins, see Enterprise Server plug-ins.

Step 3. Do one of the following:

  • For periodic Brands: access the Brand Maintenance page for the Brand in which you want to add User Authorizations.
  • For project-oriented Brands: access the Issue Maintenance page for the Issue in which you want to add User Authorizations.

Step 4. Locate the Dossier Templates options.

The Dossier Templates section

Since we are working with a newly created Brand/Issue, no Dossier templates have been added yet.

Step 5. Click Add.

The Dossier Template Maintenance page appears.

The Dossier Template Maintenance page

The Dossier Template list at the top of the page contains all available Dossier templates and acts as a filter for the lower-half of the page. By choosing a Dossier Template from the list, all user groups that have been added to the Dossier Template will be listed in the lower-half of the page (if any).

Step 6. From the Dossier Template list, choose the Dossier Template to which you want to add a user group.

Step 7. From the User Group list, choose the user group for which the Dossier Template should be accessible in Content Station.

Step 8. Click Update.

Step 9. Continue adding user groups to Dossier Templates by repeating steps 6 – 8.

Next step

You have reached the final step of the setup process: no further steps are necessary.
